About Holiday Inn Old Sydney the Rocks, The Rocks

Old World charm and a rooftop pool with Sydney Harbour views

The heart of The Rocks

This hotel is prized for its rustic style and is set in the colonial, historic center of The Rocks. Sydney's iconic attractions are within 5 minutes' walk, and you can catch a ferry from Circular Quay and cruise the harbor or cross the arch bridge to see the Opera House.

The MCA and Circular Quay

Holiday Inn Old Sydney the Rocks is within a couple of minutes' walk from a range of top restaurants in the vibrant Rocks area of the city. The Museum of Contemporary Art is just a block away and offers world-class exhibitions, plus a café with a panoramic view of Sydney Harbour.

Rooftop pool and dining

The hotel's Playfair Terrace restaurant offers relaxed bistro dining in a light-filled atrium, and there is a bar and a lounge for casual drinks. The rooftop pool and spa are a hidden gem in the Rocks area, where you can experience sweeping views of the harbor.

Modern style and views

The air-conditioned guestrooms are a mix of rustic decor and clean modern fittings with 32-inch flat-screen TVs, work desks, and WiFi. Many of the rooms have picturesque views of the harbor, glimpses of the arch bridge and opera house, or views of historic sandstone buildings.
